The expectations surrounding the Venkatesh and Maruthi combo were high. Given this, it was a challenge for the makers of Babu Bangaram to live up to them. From what we learn from figures and facts, they have successfully passed the test. The Venky-Nayanatara starrer Babu Bangaram is raking in phenomenal business across alls centers and especially so in the Telugu States.
Already, the fact that this is the biggest opening in Venky’s career as a solo hero is making news big-time. The comedy quotient, presence of Venky and music all gone into making this movie a BO hit. Babu Bangaram starred Nayanathara as heroine and the movie was produced by Naga Vamsi and PDV Prasad on Sithara Entertainments banner.
The Maruthi Dasari-directed movie received mixed talk from the critics and audience, who expressed disappointment over Dasari’s poor scripting. The word of mouth affected its business on the following days. When compared to its opened day box office collection, the movie witnessed over 50 percent drop in business on the second day. The film showed growth on the third day, but it was not up to the mark.
Babu Bangaram has collected approximately Rs. 22 crore gross at the worldwide box office in the first weekend. The film is estimated to have eared approximately Rs 13 crore for its distributors, who have shelled out Rs. 29 crore on its theatrical rights. The movie has recovered 1/3 of their investments in three days.
